Chino Valley Unified School District is accepting applications from eighth grade students to the Biomedical Science and Technology Academy (BST), a four-year program at Chino High School beginning with the 2022-23 school year.

Candidates can access the application online at through Dec. 3. 

Students will be offered two branches of specialization: biomedical science with a concentration in artificial intelligence and cyber security.  

BST is a tuition-free, competitive magnet program that combines conventional coursework with specialized classes and curriculum, preparing students for both college and a career. 

The program will be offered in a state-of-the-art facility at Chino High, currently under construction at 5472 Park Place, showcasing classrooms with advanced, high-tech equipment for hands-on experience, said school district spokesperson Andi Johnston.

To assist students, parents, and guardians with the application process, the BST Support Team will host four application support sessions, she said.
